It is hard to believe now, but when Wonder Woman first opened on tracking boards, the film was projected to earn a solid, yet unspectacular, $65 million over its opening weekend. After all, Wonder Woman did break records.
Patty Jenkins holds the title for the biggest domestic debut for a female director after Wonder Woman smashed box office estimates at the weekend. But the opening weekend for "Wonder Woman" is an achievement for female filmmakers and for the industry, says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore.
Wonder Woman shines in every fight scene, whether against German soldiers or in training against her fellow Amazons. The actress posted a video to Facebook on Wednesday (June 7) thanking fans for making Wonder Woman the sensation that it is.
Well as it turns out, while Gadot is contracted for a follow-up as part of her overall DCEU deal, Jenkins isn't quite that official yet when it comes to her involvement in Wonder Woman 2.
"A lot of girls tell me how they looked up to her, " Renee said.
EW talked to our fearless leader back in April, and she discussed wanting to set a possible Wonder Woman sequel in America.
It came midway through the film, as Diana and her love interest, American spy Steve Treynor, round up a ragtag, multicultural group of rogues, ready to go against orders and take on a secret mission during the First World War. "The story will take place in the USA, which I think is right". Chris Pine (Star Trek) creates great chemistry with Gadot.
Perhaps a female lead is what makes this film less dark than the average DC Comics movie.
Aspell also reminisced about filming her favorite scenes and the most challenging sequences in Wonder Woman. "I was like 'I need her to see some brutality, '" Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter. Patty Jenkins was already reflecting on where she'll send our hero in future adventures when she spoke with them in April, saying, "The story will take place in the United States, which I think is right", she said.
